Forum: etree Subject: adding new tracks to existing session & ffp file

I messed up and left out the first half of a session. I'm guessing I can check out the item; rename the existing tracks via my FTP software; upload new tracks 1-15 and the new info.txt; and let LMA system regenerate the player and audio file list. My question is about the fingerprint file. Do I make a new one to upload with all 30 tracks or does LMA create that? Also - it seems like LMA does make a ffp anyways, so should I be uploading the ffp.txt file my FLAC program creates?

Oh yeah - that reminds me - time to send off this year's tax-deductible contribution. Does LMA take PayPal? :)

Technically, you don't *need* to upload a ffp file or an md5; the system will create those for you. However, you should think of checksums as packing lists - they not only tell you what each file's checksum is, but what files SHOULD be there.

In other words, if your show has 30 tracks and you only upload 29 of them, the checksum will fail if you uploaded one. If you didn't, the system will say "Ok, these files all passed the test" and create a checksum for the 29 files.

So - if you're sure you've uploaded all of the files, you don't need to include a ffp/md5, but it sure doesn't hurt!

And yes, archive.org accepts PayPal: http://www.archive.org/donate/index.php

If you could please, I added 15 tracks I had missed but it doesn't seem to have derived properly. I was hoping it would sort itself out overnight but nope. Thanks - Scott

Yeah, once it's derived once, it doesn't automatically derive again, you have to tell it to do so. Which I've done. Should be good in an hour or so. :)

I'm a total n00b here - and I really hate to waste people's time with questions which have an existing answer out there, but after a couple days of searching the site and 'googling', I cannot figure it out!

When uploading a live show, there are not enough fields to accomodate all of the audio tracks from this specific performance (I am one short).

I naturally assumed I could go through and add a new track to the list after the fact, but so far I'm coming up with nothing, and all the instructions I've read are not in laymans terms.

Isn't there an 'upload' option when making edits to an exisisting show? I just want to add this last WMA!

I even tried to redo from scratch, so I could delete the older/obsolete version, but now I'm back to square one.

Here's my first attempt (track 6 is missing):

Here's my second attempt (track 11 is missing):

HALP!

It looks like your uploads are in Open Source Audio rather than the Live Music Archive (which this message board is for) but the LMA process is to go to Edit Item, then Item Manager, then checkout. That will open up the fileset via FTP so you can upload additional files...give it a shot and post back here.
